Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson believes that the club need to once and for all resolve Christian Eriksen’s uncertain future at the club.
The Dane is out of contract in North London at the end of the season and has already stated his desire to leave the club to seek a new challenge whilst admitting that he would welcome interest from Real Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).
With Eriksen being able to talk to European clubs in January over a pre-contract deal which would see him leave the club as a free agent in the summer and put himself in a position of a lucrative personal situation when negotiating with his next employer.
Robinson has instead insisted that Spurs need to sell him to the highest bidder in January if he is unprepared to sign a new contract at the club.
Spurs were reported to have placed a valuation of more than £100m on the head of the 27-year-old during the summer, only for the playmaker to have remained at the Champions League finalists (The Times).
Robinson told Football Insider: “It’s got to a point with Eriksen that something is better than nothing.
“If you could have got £100million in the summer and you can only get £50million, £40million in January and he’s not going to sign a contract, I think it’s now come to a point where the situation has to go: ‘Right there’s a contract, are you going to sign it, yes or no? Okay, if you’re not we’re going to sell you and we have to sell you.’
“It’s that simple now.”
